I posted this in the Tech section as well, but I'm desperate for help.

Nowhere can I find what weight fork oil to use and how much per leg. One shop said 10wt and the other said 5wt. And neither had any idea what the capacity per leg was.

Oh, its for a fully adjustable Showa on a 99 Monster City.

Does anybody know? Anybody? Anybody please?

I really want to get this wrapped up tonight so my wife can ride her new bike this weekend.

Thanks for any help anybody could provide.
Cheers,
Dave

For a 99 M900C it is recommended 457cc of oil in each leg or better yet measure from the top of the leg to the oil level and it should be 3.126" or 79.4mm..

Stock is NOT ATF, or 5wt. It's 7.5 or 8wt (I forget) fork oil. Most of us use 5wt, make sure you get oil designed for cartridge forks (most are). You can get some 30wt and some "like water" to fine tune the ride if you like. I would recommend about a 10mm overfill.
